All the World

Submitted by Tess from Lexington Park!
And here is my second favorite picture book of 2009: All the World by Liz Garton Scanlon, illustrated by Caldecott Honor medalist Marla Frazee. The words of All the World are a poem about the earth which everyone shares. The illustrations are those of multi-cultural faces, in multi-cultural places, experiencing universal emotions and activities. Witness the beauty of nature, and the comfort of things we all do: eat, grow, travel, relax. "Hope and peace and love and trust. All the world is all of us." I find this book to be a soothing meditation, well suited to the child curious as to how they figure into this big, whirling, planet that countless people call home.
